  • Your Job
    Sorcerers are the slowest and lowest damage-per-second class and are the single most fragile; yet, they also have the most extreme burst damage in the game with their archmagics. Their spells take a very long time to cast and they are easily interrupted; yet, once cast, their stronger spells frequently annihilate anything they touch.

  • Skill Overview
    • Archistaff Skills: Their mighty archmagics, these spells are the highest burst-damage skills in the game.
    • Core Skills: Passive skills that improve or grant attacks and utility abilities.
    • Augments: Passive skills that can be set regardless of current Vocation.

  • Key Skills:

    • Skill 3

  • Suggested Support
    Considering their fragility, weak defenses and long cast-times, this class suffers more without a melee unit than any other. A melee guardian is almost required, and a healer is helpful, as Sorcerers cannot heal themselves.
